Morehead Writing Project hosts Teen Writers Day Out

The Morehead Writing Project will host a Teen Writers Day Out from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, in the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC). This event is part of Write Out 2019, a collaboration between the National Writing Project and the National Parks Service to allow educators, youth and park rangers to create, connect and explore the world together for two weeks in October. 

The theme of the Teen Writers Day Out is “Making Stories of People, Place, and Perspectives.” The day offers a writing marathon format and allow teen writers to write in a variety of forms and share their writing with Morehead State University students and faculty, as well as teens from across the region.  

Bookending National Day on Writing on Oct. 20, Write Out consists of activity cycles that include prompts that invite participants to write across a variety of media and curricular areas, facilitated online meetups, curated resources and Twitter chats. Participants take part in as many or as few activities as fit their schedule. Additionally, through collaborative online possibilities, participants will be invited to share their creations, write, learn and connect with the broader community.  

Cost to participate in the Teen Writers Day Out is $20 per student.  

Students, faculty and staff interested in volunteering should contact Dr. Deanna Mascle, instructor of English at MSU, at or 606-783-5280. For more information on the Morehead Writing Project, visit
